How could the performance have been better?

The narrator sounded like he had taken sleeping tablets

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

I read this book back in the seventies, at the time I thought it was really good. I don't know if it was the narration or that it has dated badly but I found it dreary. It is slightly misogynistic with some of the feel of his later Dune novels but none of the wonder. nothing much happens.
